A member of the cabbage family, the swede is often confused with the turnip, though they look quite different. It’s also known as yellow turnip, Swedish turnip and Russian turnip and, in America, rutabaga. In Scotland, where it is known as neeps, swede is the traditional accompaniment to haggis on Burns night.
Swedes have a delicate, sweet flavour, a great smooth texture and are very versatile. This healthy vegetable provides many health benefits as it’s a good source of vitamins (A, C), fiber and nutrients.
Boil or steam Swedes. Roasting will take up a much longer time because of its toughness.
